     Almost everyone who visits Vancouver falls in love with the city. No other place
     in the world can compete with this setting of sandy beaches, acres of lush
     forested parkland and towering snow-capped mountains. It’s a city where you
     can ski, golf, hike and sail all in a single day. Safe and peaceful, Vancouver is
     consistently rated the world’s most livable city.


     Spectacular natural beauty is just part of Vancouver’s appeal. This
     cosmopolitan multicultural city of 2.1 million people is a favourite for
     restaurant-lovers, and boasts an exciting arts scene and world-class shopping.


     A mild temperate climate makes Vancouver a year-round recreational paradise
     where you can jog on the beach every day of the year. From November to March,
     ILSC students enjoy skiing or snowboarding on local mountains (Grouse, Cypress
     and Seymour) or at Whistler-Blackcomb, North America’s top-ranked ski resort.
     With the beach close by, summer is the perfect time to get out on the water, or
     enjoy a BBQ on the beach.

ToronTo
No wonder people call Toronto ‘the world within a city.’ This vibrant metropolis, which is
home to more than 100 different ethnic and cultural groups, is the most multicultural
city on the planet. Set on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario, Toronto is also Canada’s
largest city with a population of 5.1 million. It’s a city of neighbourhoods, each with its
own rich history and unique charm and character. Funky and fashionable Queen Street
West, the eclectic Danforth, and elegant Yorkville are just a few of the favourites.



ILSC students love exploring Toronto’s great outdoors, sailing to the Toronto Islands,
picnicking in High Park or taking day trips to spectacular Niagara Falls. You can ride
roller coasters at Canada’s Wonderland or ride camels at the world-famous Toronto
Zoo. Summer in Toronto means street festivals, celebrations and outdoor concerts late
into the night – and don’t miss Caribana in July, a week-long celebration of Caribbean
culture with non-stop music and dancing.

     world architecture and new world chic, stylish shopping districts and lush green
     parks abound in a city whose unique character was shaped by the French, the
     English, and two centuries of immigrants from more than 80 countries.


     ILSC students love Montréal’s sizzling urban scene, from live music and dancing
     to theatre and endless restaurant choices. In summer, they enjoy Mont Royal’s
     green expanses, cycling along the banks of the St. Lawrence River and relaxing
     outdoors at the world renowned Montréal International Jazz Festival. Winter offers
     endless choices for outdoor activities, from snowboarding at Mont Tremblant to
     snowshoeing and tobogganing at Jean Drapeau Park.

                                              I chose to study at ILSC for the second
                                              time because of the wide range of
                                              programs and courses that they offer
                                              which I didnt find in other ESL schools.

                                  has a diverse multicultural mix.

                                  With its steep rolling hills, and quaint street cars, its stunning
                                  parks, and seaside neighbourhoods, San Francisco has a relaxed
                                  west coast feel that reflects the natural landscape of the area, and
                                  the inclusive, liberal attitudes of the residents. At the same time,
                                  the city’s financial and high-tech industries are at the cutting edge,
                                  ensuring a high standard of living.

                     I started at Laney College and transferred to UC Berkeley. I graduated
                     from UC Berkeley with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and Operations
                     Research (IEOR) and a minor in Electrical Engineering and Computer
                     Sciences (EECS) with honor. I now work for an investment banking firm
                     in San Francisco as a software engineer/web developer. My time at
                     Laney College prepared me not only academically but also culturally for
                     the transition to UC Berkeley.

       AusTrALIA
       Australia Country Overview
       Australia, the “land down under,” is a sunny big island country, and a continent all its own, with a wealth of
       unique cultural and natural wonders to explore and experience. Come connect here with koalas, kangaroos, and
       gregarious Aussies alike in "the Lucky Country" that combines world-class modern cities with amazing outdoor
       escapes. With its rugged and varied landscape, people go to Australia to see the Great Barrier Reef, adventure into
       the “outback” to see Uluru (Ayers Rock), or to stick to the beach and enjoy surfing, sailing or kayaking.


       Australia's long geological isolation makes it a perfect place to see some of the world’s most unusual wildlife.
       Culture-seekers will be intrigued by Australia’s colonial and prehistoric past, and will enjoy the diverse influences
       of the many adventurous immigrants who have settled in this South Pacific paradise.

In India, the term “masala,” which means “mix,” is used to describe the spice mixtures that add such rich
flavours to Indian cooking. The term could just as easily be used to describe New Delhi, India’s vibrant and
bustling capital. New Delhi is a young metropolis, built upon the remnants of ancient cities.


A fascinating mix of historical monuments and modern high-tech industry, colourful nightlife and fabulous
shopping and dining options, New Delhi is a feast for the senses. It is also a convenient launching point for
some of India’s best tourist destinations like the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan and the majestic Himalayan Hill Stations.
